Crowell introduces bill to shed light on redistricting

December 15th, 2011 in News

State Sen. Jason Crowell wants to change Missouri's Constitution so all future legislative redistricting efforts are covered by the state's Open Meetings law.

Reacting to complaints the new state House and Senate districts were drawn outside of the public's view, Crowell, R-Cape Girardeau, announced Wednesday he's introduced a bill requiring all meetings of any Senate or House redistricting commission, or judicial commission, to be public.
